    No way, at no point did Floyd cover up like this on the ropes v Hatton and Manny proved he had far more power than Hatton did, Floyd took a stinging shot here, it was crisp and flush.

    Floyd didn`t land much though, it was a completely boring fight.

    Floyd had to clinch for the rest of the round.

    He broke a sweat when that shot landed.

    The whole thing was fake.
    Pacquiao did land a fairly good punch there but he backed off. The two had obviously agreed to make it a sparring session. Pathetic rip off.

    I will believe to my dying day that Pac stops Mayweather in their primes. Whether May cheats with his intravenous peds or not.

    I'm with you on that subject. Hell, I believe if he faced
    a fresher Deloyhoa or Mosley he losses. When
    he faced them their best fighting years were 8-10
    yrs prior.

    First punch. If you look closely Mayweather was already moving back his upper body and his weight was on the right leg, so when the punch landed he was pushed off balance, on the other side, instead of moving he stayed on ropes and had to take some body punches. Maybe he briefly lost control of his legs?

    But the one against Maidana definitely wasn’t. The bell helped him there.

    SO DID THE JUDGES. MAIDANA WON THAT FIGHT STRAIGHT OUT. AS DID CASTILLO YEARS EARLIER. IMAGINE IF EVERYBODY HAD TO GO TO PANAMA CITY, PANAMA TO FACE ROBERTO DURAN? WHAT AN ADVANTAGE. AN ENTIRE 2/3 AND ALL THE LAST 1/2 OF A CAREER! JUDGES, REFS, COMMISION, WBC, A, O, IBF, ETC. ALL IN YR HANDS. YOU pick the ringsize. YOU pick the gloves.

    Not what I saw at all.

    First fight it wasn't so much that he struggled, but he waited too long to open up. Spent like half the round just covering up and then trying to pull a Leonard throwing flurries to steal the round. I think Bradley won some based on being busier.

    Second fight both guys changed tactics and Bradley was much more uncharacteristically aggressive. I gave him at least 4 rounds and he got in some very good uppercuts. But due to lack of pacing and underestimating Pacquiao's chin, he gassed and then Pac just took over with overwhelming combinations and hand speed.

    Third fight was a wash.

    In any case, if it was so clear cut, why 3 fights? It's not like people were demanding that fight, nor was Bradley a huge money draw.

    lmao! Mayweather was only hurt in Pacland. That punch didn’t even buzz him. He was already moving back when the punch landed. Denial is not just a river in Africa.

    Nah, it wasn't a joke. Floyd was legit hurt in that fight. Remember Mosley caught him with two right hands in the span of about 10 seconds. You could see it in his legs. The only other people that have ever rocked Floyd was Corley and Maidana towards the end of the round. But none like how Mosley did, to Floyds credit he has always shown a very good chin and remarkable recovery.

    Thank you for seeing what 95% of the world saw. Though I'm not a Mayweather
    fan, I will give him credit for withstanding those shots from Mosely and rebounding
    quickly. But to say he wasn't hurt is insane as some have written and is
    seeing Mayweather through 'Rose colored glasses" With blinders on by his
    cultist fanatics
